Glorious Angels

Glorious Angels sing the news
The gift of God too good to lose
Announcing the birth of our great Lord
To humble shepherds lost for words.

Christ is born in a poor place
Yet Saviour of the human race
The shepherds seek the Lamb of God
A tiny child is God's true Word.

A gift too marvellous to describe
Making us glad to be alive.
Beyond any price that wealth could buy
The only one who can satisfy.

Jesus born into our dark world,
Breaking the evil stranglehold.
We run away from the one true God
Who can lead our footsteps where He trod.

Glorious angels fill the sky
News of God's wonderful reply.
To all the yearnings of mankind
The greatest love you will ever find.
